Nail Kenneth Cole's Red Haute NYFW Mani

Posted Tuesday February 11, 2014 4:55 PM GMT

From garments and trendy tresses to catwalk-worthy manis, we love eyeing up details at New York Fashion Week.

Though we've noticed nude has been a popular polish for Fall 2014, Kenneth Cole's nail artist,Gina Edwards had a different hue in mind. Drum roll, please …

Tell us about these fabulous nails!

Fabulous nails! We have a dark deep burgundy going on here backstage at Kenneth Cole. What Kenneth did is he brought us urban cowgirl/cowboy-meets-New York City. You’re going see fur, leather, open gloves and beautiful streamline hats. What he wanted is to eliminate a really rugged tough girl, so how do you not go with a dark red?

Any tips so you don’t get red all over your cuticles and hands?

When I first started, I use to do the same thing! I use to take the cotton ball and rub right up against the cuticle … wrong! [One] you’re dehydrating the cuticle, [two] it’s going to get all over your skin.

What you want to do is …

Saturate the cotton and hold in on the nail for a few seconds then brush downwards. Never do a circular motion because it creates a mess and is very difficult to get out.
